Fried Apples THM-E, Sugar-free, and Dairy-free option

Crisp, juicy apples in shades of green, yellow, and red are being picked in orchards these late summer days. Their flavors vary from tart to honey sweet. In our area freshly picked apples begin to appear at produce markets in late July and continue being picked until late October.  Fried apples are so easy to make and the Brown Sugar Sweetener caramelizes on them for a melt-in-your-mouth goodness. I was gifted Granny Smith Apples and the combination of tart/caramelized is so appealing.

Apples trees are one of the easiest to grow as a orchard hobbyist. There are so many kinds to pick from it is hard to decide. Ginger Gold is wonderful early apple good for making sauce. The fall apples are my favorite. There are so many kinds it is hard to choose a favorite. Gala, Honey Crisp, and Fuji are a few of my favorite fresh eating apples.
